Rational critiques of fantasy world

I'm looking for essays that apply analytical thought to the in-world logic of fictional worlds. For example, this essay criticizing Gringotts for failing to offer interest-bearing accounts, or Larry Niven's Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex.

A few clarifications:
• I am not looking for literary analysis. I'm looking for something that treats the book as a window into an alternate universe, and tries to extrapolate other details of that universe.
• I'm award of Harry Potter And The Methods of Rationality but I'm more looking for things in essay form than full-on fanfic.
